going to be wrapped up by noon on wednesday. we'll have close ising arguments on thursday and you folk will be deliberating and be sequestered until you come up with a verdict. if you look at the time line and you say, the case is supposed to be done by lunchtime tomorrow, that is telling all the being parties and all the lawyers following this case in the courtroom that there is no way sandusky is going to testify now because he wouldn't be on that stand for that little bit amount of time when the prosecution is going to get his claws into him and say look, we've got 10 victims' stories here and we're going to ask about each individual one and try to get you to break down on the witness stand. >> that is the thing. i was kind of of wondering whether or not the defense was really even want to put him up there in the first place. what are your thoughts on that? ? >> well, his lawyer who, luke to talk, must have skipped class when they had the class on you have the right to to remain silent. he says is sandusky going to testify? he saudi said he was going to testify in his opening statements.
i don't lie. i'm a good catholic. he is making us think that yes, he is going to testify. i saw a witness go on and off that stand in just five minutes with with the direct and cross- examination yesterday. i have never seen that before. the witnesses have gotten through their testimony pretty fast. but i don't think any defendant could get through testimony that fast and that would be precluding anybody else taking the witness stand from here on in. hike if sandusky got on there at 9:00 first thing this morning, i don't think we'd even be close to being done by noon tomorrow. we've been viced in this case. maybe another surprise is lurking when we get in there today. >> wanted to ask you real will you quickly about the character witnesses that took the stand. your thoughts on how strong do you think those character witnesses were for sandusky? >> well, my thoughts and a lawyer from the philadelphia area who is representing one of the victims in this case who has been in the courtroom every day who we have as a guest on our good day show all the time said weak was the one word he
used to describe the case. he sawed you start strong and they started completely weak. these cache witnesses did not say one thing to counter what we heard from the 21 defense at this timing prosecution witnesses including those eight victims now adults who talked about being raped as children by sandusky. and when you have two former assistant coaches getting on there telling everybody, here is words they use. as great guy. he is top ?och. he is a local hero. well, sure, that is his public persona but what we heard he does in private with these kids was just horrific and nothing was said to say that didn't happen. -- he is top notch. >> thank you so much. we want to let people know dlib rigs could begin as early as thursday in the jerry sandusky trial. thank you again. -- deliberations could begin as early as thursday in the jerry sandusky trial. the northerly epps saints bonty program.

the nba that in the championship round or game, both teams nicknames don't end in s such as wizards, capitals, redskins, yankees. is in the first time that two peoples whose names don't end in s are met which the championship. >> he wanted you to work today. >> it was research intensive. >> not going for make us work hard on this. ee put our trusty intern tyler to the test. >> another shout out. >> every day now. >> pretty much. during the summer, tucker and i take a little time off and it is one of the things -- >> we all rove the question and we double-check the answer. >> are you going to put him on camera one of these days. >> he y, we will. this required a lot of research. the answer is fascinating.
let's start with major league baseball. there are only two teams who names don't end in an x, the boston red sox and the chicago white sox. they are both in the american league. so it has not happened in major league baseball. it is impossible unless a national league is developed and their -- >> low they both won the world series, they haven't played each other. >> sometime we pronounce them with ss depending on how early in the morning. the last time was in 2007, the boston red sox. no two teams. >> in the nfl, i've never thought about it. every team in the nfl ends with the letter s. not even a possibility. so it has never happened there. >> the national hockey league, it could happen but it never has. there are three teams whose names don't end in s. is colorado avalanche in the western conference, tampa bay lightning in the eastern
conference and the machine minute wild in the western conference. tampa bay lightning was the last team not ending in an s to play in a stanley cup final in 2004. but in order for two teams to face each other in the stanley cup, the lightning would have to play either the colorado avalanche or the minnesota wild. that has not happened. so it has never happened in nhl but it could. >> those are names we don't hear much so my guess is it is not going to happen. >> let's get onto basketball. we'll show you highlights here. we've got four team in the nba. the possibilities are a little better. the orlando magic, the miami heat, the oklahoma city thunder and utah jazz. we've got four teams. two teams on each side of eastern and western conference. we have a better chance in the nba. and tony, you want to give away the big giveaway. >> the miami heat are playing the thunder right now. and bob, this is the first time it has happened in one of the
four major sports that two teams, neither name ending in s, have played each other. ach so this is the first time. >> amazing. >> let us mention, here is our extra credit bone us. if you are into soccer and you want to find some that don't end in s, check out soccer. their teen of the 16 teams do not end in s. -- thirteen of the 16 teams do not end in s. >> how long does it take you to work on this? >> tyler worked on it all day yesterday. >> it is interesting that major league soccer, most of the teams, the names don't end in s. most recently, 2011, the los angeles galaxy and the houston
dynamo played. >> do we think he was testifying you guys. do we think he knew the answer in. >> i doubt it. when we read the question, we were all like i don't know the answer to this. a great question. >> tyler, did it take a while? >> yes. >> we thank you, tyler. >> his eyes are barely open right now. >> we give credit where credit is due. bob, thank you for the question. we love those brain teasers. that is a fascinating one. if you've got a question that you want answered, go to myfoxdc.com and click on the weather tab. >> there you go. >> my favorite of the month. >> love it. >> let's check in with julie wright and gettette late off the traffic. did you get all those numbers down? >> oh, boy. >> turn that mic on. >> this is something that also rarely happens. silence from julie and we can't hear julie. >> you notice that all of our
